Can I jsut say I love the stage manager post leslieexplainsitall started that’s just all us SMs/tech folks checking in on whatever’s happening.
I just really love that we have such a strong, supportive, and close community. You’re all great and wonderful and yeah.
hugs for all. Happy whatever’s-next-for-you!
Those headsets where you can feel your jaw being pushed out of alignment and your head is being mushed like a whole cantaloupe in a trash compactor.
I’m like 67% sure most of my cast thinks the 3 person stage management team is one sentient being, like if you talk to/email one of us, you’ve talked to/emailed all of us.
This is not, in fact, the case.

I think I just found the opening line to my memoirs/stage management handbook.
one of the best parts of my job is looking out over a room full of actors giggling over something someone said and thinking, “Gosh this cast is adorable.”
the highest compliment a director can give a stage manager is, “I’m not keeping track of all this, so I’m glad you’re here”.
I need input.
I’m making some business cards, and I’m considering putting my graduation date (May 2014), my degree (BFA), and my university on them, below all my contact info/social media stuff.
Is this a good idea? I have a couple of networking opportunities coming up before I graduate, so the purpose of these cards is: hire me after May, because I’m still in the process of getting my degree. I’m not going to get a bunch, obviously, just enough to pass out.
I welcome your insight. Thank you!
